If Your Brother Sins Against You

Matthew 18

15 "Moreover o if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, p you have gained your brother. 16 "But if he will not hear, take with you one or two more, that q 'by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established.' 1 17 "And if he refuses to hear them, tell it to the church. But if he refuses even to hear the church, let him be to you like a r heathen and a tax collector. 18 "Assuredly, I say to you, s whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. 19 t "Again 2 I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, u it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. 20 "For where two or three are gathered v together in My name, I am there in the midst of them."
